Bummer: Humans Will Be Extinct In 100 Years ‘Cause Climate Change

Another unhinged prognostication from the Cult Of Climastrology, in which the climate apocalypse (yes, that phrase is used in the article) is a sure thing

A child born today may live to see humanity’s end, unless…

Humans will be extinct in 100 years because the planet will be uninhabitable, according to Australian microbiologist Frank Fenner, one of the leaders of the effort to eradicate smallpox in the 1970s. He blames overcrowding, denuded resources and climate change.

Fenner’s prediction is not a sure bet, but he is correct that there is no way emissions reductions will be enough to save us from our trend toward doom. And there doesn’t seem to be any big global rush to reduce emissions, anyway. When the G7 called on Monday for all countries to reduce carbon emissions to zero in the next 85 years, the scientific reaction was unanimous: That’s far too late.

In fact, Mankind is as bad as an ice age or comet strike (from the embedded link)

Fenner told The Australian he tries not to express his pessimism because people are trying to do something, but keep putting it off. He said he believes the situation is irreversible, and it is too late because the effects we have had on Earth since industrialization (a period now known to scientists unofficially as the Anthropocene) rivals any effects of ice ages or comet impacts.

If it’s too late, why do anything? We can just act like Cult of Climastrology members, who refuse to give up their own use of fossil fuels and have huge carbon footprints.

Easter Island is famous for its massive stone statues. Polynesian people settled there, in what was then a pristine tropical island, around the middle of the first millennium AD. The population grew slowly at first and then exploded. As the population grew the forests were wiped out and all the tree animals became extinct, both with devastating consequences. After about 1600 the civilization began to collapse, and had virtually disappeared by the mid-19th century. Evolutionary biologist Jared Diamond said the parallels between what happened on Easter Island and what is occurring today on the planet as a whole are “chillingly obvious.”

Not mentioned is that the collapse and disappearance occurred during the Little Ice Age. Humanity doesn’t do all that well during Holocene cool periods, while it thrives during warm periods. Back to the original source

And no possible treaty that emerges from the current United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Bonn, Germany, in preparation for November’s United Nations climate conference in Paris, will be sufficient. At this point, lowering emissions is just half the story — the easy half. The harder half will be an aggressive effort to find the technologies needed to reverse the climate apocalypse that has already begun.

Hmm, so, more Big Government dominance and control, implementation of draconian rules, regulations, and laws to reign in emissions. As to the second part, that would be fine. Why not do that prior to blowing up the entire economy of the world?

For years now, we have heard that we are at a tipping point. Al Gore warned us in An Inconvenient Truth that immediate action was required if we were to prevent global warming. In 2007, Sir David King, former chief scientific advisor to the British government, declared, “Avoiding dangerous climate change is impossible – dangerous climate change is already here. The question is, can we avoid catastrophic climate change?” In the years since, emissions have risen, as have global temperatures. Only two conclusions can be drawn: Either these old warnings were alarmist, or we are already in far bigger trouble than the U.N. claims. Unfortunately, the latter seems to be the case.

Except for the pesky Pause thingy. Darned nature keeps getting in the way of the Narrative.

    Dr. Fenner is wrong. The human species will survive global warming even if it reaches 5 degrees C warmer. It won’t be pleasant but the species will survive.

  2. john says:

    Teach that pause on planet Earth. Is that on the surface of the Earth where I live ? Or are those readings above the surface?
    Teach if this year like so many of the more recent years in the past sets a new highest temp record will we still be in your “pause” mode?

  3. Kevin says:

    I’m so sick of armageddonists. And negative people in general. Always worrying about something that probably won’t happen. They’re depressing to be around.

  4. john says:

    Teach considers what some fringe nut job said to be more noteworthy than the fact that last May was the hottest May ever recorded.

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    Historical months and years may differ from what was reported in previous reports.

    Now that’s so reassuring.

  6. jl says:

    John- You keep repeating your mantra of “highest ever recorded!”, but sorry, it doesn’t change the fact that it means nothing. Doesn’t prove a thing on why it is allegedly the warmest, and of course the warmest only in 135 years. Pretty good chance there were much warmer months in the other 4 billion years, right? That would be around 48 billion months, John. What do you think?

  7. Jeffery says:


    What I think is that human civilization has only been around some 10,000 years, not 4 billion. The best evidence shows that the mean global surface temperature is most likely higher now than at any time in the Holocene. And it’s getting warmer. And it’s because of atmospheric CO2.
